Item Description...
Into the already overcrowded science-and-religion field comes this collection of nearly a decade's worth of conversations among various international scientists. The simple question that each of the 14 essays takes up is whether science can contribute to the search for meaning. Some scientists, such as Paul Davies, insist that we are able to understand the meaning of the universe because there's a connection between our spirit and the structure of the universe (or the spirit of God); thus, the universe is meaningful. Others, such as Bernard d'Espagnat and Thierry Magnin, argue that the universe has meaning because we cannot understand it completely. Of course, many of the scientists explore the differences between science and religion; Davies contends that the universe is not a toy of a whimsical Deity but an elegant and harmonious expression of deep meaning. On the other hand, Charles Townes attempts to show the convergence of science and religion by pointing out that each discipline operates with very similar mechanisms such as faith, revelation, observations, intuition and reason. Overall, the essays fail to offer any startling new insights, and they too often read like private conversations between the scientists rather than talks open to an interested public.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An excellent gathering of cross-cultural opinion.  Dec 14, 2006
Science and the Search for Meaning: Perspectives from International Scientists should find a home on the shelf of any college-level collection strong in both science and religion. It offers a technical gathering of papers on discussions between science and religion stemming from meetings of the minds in Europe, represents the first English translation of a recent French edition, and gathers articles by fifteen recognized leaders in the science-religion field - four Nobel Prize winners - to provide an excellent gathering of cross-cultural opinion.
